After two weeks of hiding under heavy armoury, tonight on The Masked Singer Australia, rugby legend Wendell Sailor was unmasked as the man behind the Rhino.
Despite having produced some of the competition’s fanciest footwork, Wendell’s rendition of Flo Rida’s Low was not enough to save his spot in this crazy herd of mystery celebs.
Before Wendell revealed his identity, the guessing panel of Jackie O, Lindsay Lohan, Dave Hughes, Dannii Minogue and guest panellist, Nazeem Hussain, all had their final stabs at who was hollering under the horn.
Nazeem nominated champion boxer Anthony Mundine as being Rhino, while Dannii reverted to an early hunch of former AFL star Brendan Fevola. Jackie, Lindsay and Dave however all guessed correctly, calling out Wendell as the man beneath the mask.
Despite having represented Australia in over 50 games in two separate codes, Rugby Union and Rugby League, Wendell said The Masked Singer Australia has been his toughest challenge yet.
“That was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Just out of your comfort zone. I’d rather play an Origin, or a Bledisloe or grand final. And also, I get claustrophobic, so this is more terrifying.”
While Wendell might be heading back to the quieter plains of real life, The Masked Singer Australia journey continues for the four other entertainers from tonight’s show.
Spinning one of the show’s biggest mysteries, the exotic Spider performed AC/DC’s Australian rock anthem, Long Way To The Top, which had her swinging out of her usual genre.
Though Monster may look cute and fluffy, there was nothing silly about her performance tonight. Tugging at the nation’s collective heart strings, Monster floored the crowd when she belted out her rendition of Foreigner’s power ballad, I Want To Know What Love Is.
Dressed in one of the most dazzling costumes of the competition, Unicorn came to show the crowd that her voice is pure magic. Knocking Ike and Tina Turner’s Proud Mary out of the Park, this celebrity is not here to horse around.
And rounding out the night’s memorable acts was a fiery performance from our very own Dragon. With clues that alluded to speed and power, it seems only right that Dragon should slay his version of Katy Perry’s Roar.
